The NBA announced James Johnson will get a one game suspension without pay due to the incident in Toronto, thus missing tonight’s Miami Heat game against the Indiana Pacers.

His antagonist, Serge Ibaka, will also miss his next game without pay, as the Toronto Raptors face the Cleveland Cavaliers on Thursday.

Tuesday’s game marks Ibaka’s fifth career ejection, Johnson has three of them.

Besides that altercation, the league fined Raptors guard DeMar DeRozan and Heat guard Goran Dragic $25,000 and $10,000, respectively, for their dust-up after the buzzer, when DeRozan “attempted to forcefully shove Dragic with an open hand,” per the NBA’s news release.
